secrets that very few people know about them. this is one man that can help us now. i deal with students from universities where they make documents and then ask me questions. i would suggest that we engage the students from our universities to come and learn about our system and then encourage our retirees to volunteer sometimes so they can share their experience. yesterday, i was in the park and i was listening to this professor from uc-berkeley who bring students here to talk about sfpuc and all of the politics, the bonding. i was really surprised that a professor from berkeley has taken it upon himself to share information like this, because as you know, commissioners, you do what you have to do, but what leads things to happen is politics. and our young people should know about all the politicking that goes on and how sometimes if you pay attention to the maintenance of our infrastructure it pays good dividends, and if you do not pay attention to the maintenance of our infrastructure then we have rapid issues. jon is a great guy in all the time i have known him. it is really said th
did that, note so i am going to remind you guys again, until we find another way of using secure technology, you will have to find a way to come by the office to get it so you have time to review your materials in advance of the meeting. the first thing i want to do is talk to you under the heading of legislative and policy of detente. supervisor chiu introduce legislation, which i gave you a copy of, including the press release, to register voters. he introduced this on september 21. as you know, most legislation introduced sits under a 30-day world, so we are in a period of time, and we will be scheduled for a hearing at the public safety committee as early as november 1. that is the earliest it could come. it may push forward a bit. it is not likely to be passed and signed until early early next year note -- until very early next year, depending, of course, on how those meetings go. supervisor chiu's office has asked us to act. two years ago, when legislation regarding promoters was introduced, the entertainment commission held a hearing. alternatively, the president may choos
us. today is a major milestone in our sf park program. it is a new system of managing parking in the city and county of san francisco. the mta was fortunate enough to receive a $25 million partnership grant to look at ways to help with congestion in urban cities and find a way to do with pricing. rather than looking at toll booths and things of that nature, we thought it would be a more elegant solution to look at where the cars are going better actually trying to park. by making parking easier and getting better data, we believe we will have a strategy that will reduce congestion on city streets. over 30% of the contestant dickcongest -- congestion is related to automobiles looking for parking. we want to provide better data in terms of the sensors on the street. they will have a real time information needed for 511, through the website, or through their smart phones to receive information as to where parking is available in the city. the parking will be made available because we're going to properly priced the parking in the city. by having these smart readers, we will be ab

the best resource any water manager could have right now. many of us have too much to read and someone said here's a 3 hundred page thing and this is called primer. i actually read it, 65 pages and it has a very detailed cd. what this starts is how many of us can tell us the fundamentals of climate and weather change. most of us, one man? then you don't need to read this. the fundamentals of that we learn listening to the radio or watching the weather man and that's not good enough for us because we have to learn the hand gauge because we don't want to sit around feeling unnerved when someone says sea levels can go 25 feet. that's not where leaders take others. we have to know what's real and in the range of possibility. so this report is the best primer on what is effective climate. secondly, we all here about the poles shrinking in antarctica, based on this you see they play a bigger roll with respect to water and reflection from the sun. there are things you need to know. we don't need fearful people. many of us are managers that make hard decisions in investments we need to be empower

? how much can you use him? >> president clinton has been an enormous ally for us and asset. two weekends back he was coming in the next day in pennsylvania, and colorado, and people remember that he was a president that came in when the economy was tough, and by the end of his eight years the economy was going well. remember, he and president reagan both in their first mid terms had approval ratings that were sim to where president obama's are right now, but president clinton did so many things to get that economy that was challenged climbing again, and i know president obama looks at his job and feels like it's basically the feel job, take an anemic economy and have it grow stronger, and deal with the deficits over the course of his presidency. there is much to emlate. the good news is, we had a wake-up call earlier in the year. none of the candidates have been running complacently. they have been running scared. for as much concerns people have about the democrats, look at the republican approval rating in the polls. this is not a popular republican party right now. >> some ma
not justify actions using climate change without the science to support them unless their justified for other reasons. i'm going to poke a bear here - a big bear - but he's not in the room so can't kick me out. the governor proposed two new surface reservoirs in california and the large part of the back up justification was issue of climate change and the terrible impact on storage. people are not doing to believe this, not opposed to new damages but i'm apposed to amdams. i think it's a great way to evaluate new,dams or possibilities for them in california it's not good enough reason to build them and that's an important distinction. ironically we're having this same debate in nuclear power. climate change is a great thing to open the debate for nuclear power but by itself, not a good argument to build new nuclear power plants. there's economics, basic global problems, things that have not disperiod. >> climate change is a new justification for doing assessment but not necessarily an argument for doing certain large investments and building things and we have to be careful about building in

some large blocks on the president's podium so it could not be used, to try to but bars across if so it could not be used. the challenge is that this is a historic landmark, and the historic preservation community is very committed to not marring the historic landmark, so there's nothing that could be down that would not be reversible. we would have to do -- nothing that could be done that would not be reversible. everything that we do would have to be reversible. i can tell you that we looked at a number of different designs, and the potted plant auction was the most popular -- the part of a plant -- the potted plant option was the most popular. that this means putting a table of there with a plan on it. it would be able to be removed. supervisor chiu: when the issue was first raised a number of months ago, i have to admit i had never look behind me, and it was probably not until a week or two that i actually examine what we have behind me, and i agree with supervisors avalos and daly that i wish the option of keeping the president's desk at a lower level -- i personally think that
